Five Trends Of Commercial Lighting In The 2018

Mar 29, 2018

Human lighting

  Light affects our lives in many ways, including our health, our emotions, our productivity, our attention, our sleep cycle, our decision-making power, and so on. With the use of intelligent lighting and Internet of things, lighting features such as color, intensity and time can be automatically adjusted to meet people's needs. In an article in digital lumens, for example, the authors note: "In children's schools, biosensors will track students ' alertness and subtly change the spectrum to automatically increase their attention at any time."

  ” Chad Groshart,iald (Member of the International Lighting Designers Association), LEED AP BD + C (LEED Green Architectural Design and Construction qualification officer) and well Faculty/ap (OK qualification), he is directly involved in people's Daily lighting (HCL). Groshart said: "People because of lighting is an important trend, people's interest in it more and more widely used, the latest control technology also make it easier to implement." He said: "The standard is always the catalyst behind the HCL trend."

  ” Well building standards are a performance-based system for measuring, authenticating, and monitoring architectural environmental characteristics that affect people's health and well-being.

  It is a Third-party certification issued by the Green Business Certification company (GBCI), which manages the LEED certification and accreditation process.

  Intelligent lighting enabler for Internet applications Lighting is ubiquitous, and each fixture can be easily and reliably plugged in. By adding sensors, LED technology and connectivity change the way we visually experience and interact in the workspace.

  An intelligent, sensor-filled, connected lighting system will become a data-driven network that can be bundled into an automated building management system (BMS). Prospective building owners and facility managers will treat each light point as a data node and may be early adopters of emerging smart buildings and IoT applications.

  The lighting and energy management-connected lighting control Systems They now choose will be the infrastructure to implement these applications.

  Constantly spreading sensors We are still in the pioneering phase in understanding which things networking applications will start and which sensor data will be required applications.

  In preparing the unknown infrastructure for the building, some facility managers hedge their bets by installing a larger number of sensors in the connected lighting management system. In addition to light sensors and occupancy sensors, prospective thinking facility managers are experimenting with sensors such as relative humidity, particulate matter, and environmental pollutants.

  The "More The better" consciousness is being popularized. "Lighting is considered an ideal sensor deployment platform, not surprisingly. "Although no one knows the exact potential of each type of sensor, there is general agreement among the equipment managers of high-end design projects, especially potential reservations, because no one wants to be left behind when everything becomes reality," Groshart said.


  Simplified Daylight Acquisition Daylight acquisition is not a new lighting control strategy, similarly, the market loudly calls for simplifying the lighting control debugging process is not a matter of a day or two.

  ASHRAE 90.1-2016 reinforced the requirement for side-lighting and top-lighting automatic daylight-sensitive control, adding more lighting requirements, while the LEED certification rating system contains 3 points for proper lighting. With the emphasis on simplification of installation, it is hoped that the daylight acquisition problem can be solved more easily by the new lighting control system, which provides easy setting and debugging tools.

  It is hoped that the natural light can be brought into space as much as possible, not only in accordance with the specification, but also in energy efficiency.

  Daylight acquisition using lighting control system to adjust artificial lighting to respond to changes in daylight, the automatic lighting control system using optical sensors to measure the amount of natural light in space, and in sufficient ambient light si cho dark or turn off artificial light, achieve consistent best light level, while reducing energy consumption.

  Energy consumption and regulations Although new energy laws have been driving digital lighting over the past 10 years, we still have to mention it on the 2018 lighting trends list. In fact, energy consumption continues to affect many lighting design decisions, especially as regulations are updated and become more stringent.

  Many in the industry expect the 2019-year version of Title 24 to take effect on January 1, 2020, and facilities managers outside California State will be concerned about the update, as energy authorizations may spread to other states. Although energy budgets are still key parameters for design, experts say the new rules should not prevent anyone from making good lighting designs. They point out, for example, that ASHRAE (American Institute of Heating, Refrigeration and air-conditioning engineers) Standard 90.1 has a 1-watt/square-foot trim margin above the baseline quota, which allows lighting designers to balance energy regulations with customer expectations.
